ZOO is a performance that underlines the detours of our intelligence.
Ives is in a forest, waiting for his friends with artificial pet – a sort of headless horse. While they wait, they tell each other stories. For example, the story of the neuron that decided to leave the neocortex and its endless chaos to seek refuge in the forest. There, he discovers silence. But at night, he hears the noise of a nightclub and the crackling of leaves. He understands that people are coming closer. Two lovers stop and lay down just next to him. Two lovers who never made love before. But like, right next to him!

ZOO is a solo piece that dives into how we tell ourselves stories, how we fill in the gaps of what we don’t know with these little stories. Le Peltier shows how these stories, that are like DIY analogies, are a reflection of what is brothering us, makes us anxious, or reassures us and how they show our hopes.
In this performative theatre piece, Le Peltier uses a headless robot and a blackboard on which he writes with chalk.
